European chestnut represents a wide diversity of nuts and tree types. This species more that any other was widely distributed throughout the world. As a result, its use today is on the rise especially its hybrid forms which show great resistance to blight and  large nuts.  

Marigoule: From France this early ripening chestnut is often called the tasty chestnut and has a beautiful appearance. It is resistant to phytophora and blight and does well in short cool seasons. It is precocious and is a good vigorous seedling tree for multiple uses including feeding wildlife. It is a natural hybrid with the Japanese chestnut. This is a seedling tree which was grown from seeds from the grafted tree Marigoule.
